Netflix Statement (pulling ads)

From ReadWrite Web:
http://www.readwriteweb.com/enterprise/2012/03/netflix-no-we-dont-advertise-w.php

Netflix's vice president of corporate communications, Steve Swasey, shot me a statement from the company less than an hour after I touched base with the company:

Netflix has not and does not purchase advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show. We do buy network radio advertising and have confirmed that two Netflix spots were picked up in error around the Rush Limbaugh show. We have instructed our advertising agency to make sure that this error will not happen again.

5. I hope its true.

Their FB page is being slammed with the protest posts being removed every few seconds. Why don't they instead post this on their wall?

6. Netflix has had enough of their own problems lately.




They don't need to be associated with PusBag and they know it.


Good move Netflix.

9. Like this one?

Geico has banned advertising on Limbaugh’s programs since 2004, according to a customer-service e-mail.

“On occasion, a local station may mistakenly run a GEICO ad in the wrong time slot,” the e-mail said. “We are directing our ad buyers to make sure that does not happen.”

Companies buy airtime from 'media buyers'. It is the 'media buyers' who are responsible for media placement - not the companies.
